Age of Wonders 2: The Wizard's Throne

Age of Wonders 2: The Wizard's Throne

Crashes. Horrible controls. Bad game.
The controls are convoluted. The menu system is horrible. It's hard to even figure out what the aim of the game is. It crashes left right and center, even in "safe mode". Do NOT spend money on this game.

Since i haven't bought in Steam and have not played it for three years i cannot say anything concerning its compatability.
The rest, on the other hand, is simply not true. The Menu is straight forward, the game has a CAMPAIGN mode (with a storyline that is actually worth playing through) and a Skirmish mode. If that is too complexity for you to handle .. Then i am sorry for you ;)

Works fine for me. Its one of the best games for strategy and RPG. the concept is pretty good, I wish they made sequels

I can't talk about the steam version but i have the CD version and it works great and is a great game, it can be a little slow for people not into these types of games.

OP could not be more incorrect, this game is a classic and runs perfectly.

I second maldoror's comment.

Win 7 x64 works flawlessly. Haven't had one crash in 32 hours so far.

The AoW trilogy is epic. The menus are obvious and the story, especially in 2, is also straightforward. Any fault playing this game lies with the player.

works prefectly fine for me... steam version trilogy.. loved this game as a kid :( but my original cds got ruined... anyway glad to be able to enjoy the great gameplay

OP has no clue indeed. There's little menu's, and they're all straightforward. So is the "aim of the game", which btw has a nice tutorial if you have no idea what you're doing.

This is the first strategy game I've bought, normally I'll play fighting games, FPS and 2D sidescrollers and I've been able to figure out the game. So far I've beaten the first three... chapters (?) and the game has only crashed once in about 32 hours

The game does crash and crash often for me. It crashes when I first install it, requiring me to open it in safe mode, save the game, then go into the configurator and turn on "use direct 3d". If I don't I have a flickering screen with no mouse cursor. Once I'm in it crashes after about 5 minutes play.

system specs:

Windows 7 64 bit Pro
Intel i7
12 GB ram
Geforce 670 4GB (latest nvidia drivers)

And the game IS old. I wish steam told people when a game was produced right there in the store so that one can be more aware they're paying money for abandonware that would only be appreciated by those searching for nostalgia.

Try the trick with VGA screens, or change the graphic card in configuration if you have two (there may be some problems with this game on newer nVidia cards).

The game itself is great, in my opinion the whole trilogy is a must-buy for every strategy fan well worth it's price. I don't understand why you think it's abandonware, developers did great job with releasing it again on steam, they made a patch fixing some old bugs and including wide screen support. They also announced fourth game in the series.

If you have problem with older games then do some research before buying it next time.
